Welcome to UW’s student chapter of the American Library Association! Join other iSchool students to exchange ideas, information about trends, issues and opportunities in the world of libraries!
Once you have joined an organization, you might be wondering how to make the most of your membership. See if there is a local student chapter on campus!
